The only thing to do if it is damaged by water is to dry it out.
Remove battery cover,battery and sim, place phone in a warm room for about 6 hrs or overnight

Replace everything and try again

If nothing try a battery replace i`ll keep my fingers crossed.

The arrow keys can scroll but on a game they dont


In most games you can change your keyboard keys to do differnet functions. Check your Options or Preferences in Game.

A lot of games use W for fast, X for Slow, A for Left and D for Right

Try those or Setup your Keyboard the way you want it.

Hope this Helps!

What is the symbol with the light indicator for?


That's the Scroll Lock indicator.

While not really used for anything today, Scroll Lock used to serve a purpose in DOS text editors - if it was on, and you'd press the Down arrow on your keyboard, the document would scroll down. If it was off, you would move your cursor to the line below it.

It should also work on Microsoft Excel - try it. Open up Excel, make sure Scroll Lock is on, and press the Down or Up arrows. Now turn it off, and see what happens.

If you don't know how to turn it off, search for a key marked "Scroll Lock" or any short versions of that name. If it's in a different color, you may need to press Fun+ScrollLock for the light to go off.

Blackberry curve won't turn on...


Wipe it to start over. Sometimes when you change or add something like a THEME or a download it HOSES the BB completely. So delete what was on there and don't download a theme or any other wacky add-on.

How do I stop my Blackberry going on to standby


I don't know what you are referring to when you say STANDBY option, so I'll include what I know about the password option. Maybe you mean SECURITY TIMEOUT, or maybe your version calls it standby time..

Setting up a password for the device:
Scroll to select the SETTINGS/OPTIONS icon and press [Trackwheel] to select.
Scroll to select SECURITY OPTIONS and press [Trackwheel] to select.
Scroll to select GENERAL SETTINGS before getting the next menu.
Scroll to select the PASSWORD It should say ENABLED.
For most people the security timeout is set to 1 HOUR.

Setting up the time it takes for the BB to require a password:
Select the line you need to change, and Press [Trackwheel] to access the Menu
CHANGE OPTION should be highlighted Press [Trackwheel] to select.
Scroll UP to select ENABLED and press [Trackwheel] to select.
Scroll to select the SAVE and press [Trackwheel] to select.
System responds with NEW PASSWORD: input your new password press the <-| key.
System will ask you to re-enter your NEW PASSWORD: input your new password again and press <-| key.

Keyboard not working


My first solution for you would be, press the key Fn at the bottom left side of the keyboard and and the key on the top right hand side called ""num lik"" or ""scroll"". First hold the FN key down and then press only do not hold the num lik key.

Please tell me if you need a better explanation because I think I did not explained myself very clear.
